We first went into the barn, where the upper portion had a play area. The kids could drive tractors through corn, walk through a tunnel, and swing on a rope swing. Sierra loved the rope swing. She loved it so much that after we had seen everything, we had to go back through and do the rope swing again.

In the lower portion of the barn, we could see different animals: miniature horse, donkey, quarter horse, cows, sheep, and rabbits. There was a small petting area with piglets and a chicken with funny hair and bunny. We went to the cow milking demonstration and Sierra got to milk the cow. She was very tentative, and then the cow picked her foot up and bumped Sierra's hand and Sierra didn't want to touch her again!
It was hot, so we were sure to drink plenty of water
Sierra looks a little unsure about this whole "milking a cow" business

Just outside the barn, there were two enclosures with different types of chickens, ducks and geese. Kaia was riding on my in the mei tai and a goose honked loudly. And she mimicked! The goose honked again. Kaia "honked" back.
From the barn, it was a short walk over to the dog show. The show was pretty short, probably in part because of the heat, but we got to see dogs doing agility, frisbee tricks and dock jumping. Oh, and there was also an "agility" pot bellied pig!!
We took a short tour around the pets building with dogs and cats and then ended our trip with a ride around the grounds on a tractor-pulled wagon.
The wagon ride put Kaia right to sleep.
